From an abstract dream of stardom to the concrete reality of this CD, what you hear is my journey of 30 years. Back then, I simply loved playing my guitar and capturing the heart of emotions with my words. It was my fanciful hope, however, that if an audience would discover my music, then I would become a star. But the trio that I started as a vehicle for my vision broke up. Solo, I continued my drive, but found myself traveling farther and farther away from my artistic ideals and aspiration. Ten years of gigs later, I put down my guitar, too bitter and disillusioned by the commercial music world to play another chord or utter another lyric. Over the next 20 years, the love of my wife and family resonated deep within me, increasing the intensity of every emotion. Better late than never, I was finally ready to express what I felt without needing the adulation of strangers. So, I picked up my instrument again, and within a few months, I was back playing my old songs. But I also was able to move forward, by writing new ones and recording both new and old at Breeze Bayou recording studio. There I was and here it is...just me and my guitar, me and my songs, giving voice to raw emotion...
